Very interesting.  Ingenia is indeed in current use.  Qui and Huang (2001)
described new remains and eggs they referred to Ingenia.  Lu's dissertation
was on a specimen he refers to Ingenia.  Lu et al. (2002) later wrote a
paper using this specimen as a basis for placing oviraptorosaurs in Avialae.
Osmolska (2004) described the skull roof of a referred specimen of Ingenia.
It's been used as an OTU in the phylogenetic analyses of the Theropod
Working Group (eg. Norell et al., 2001; Clark et al., 2002; Makovicky et
al., 2003; Hwang et al., 2004) and Maryanska et al. (2002).
Incidentally, it has a subfamily associated with it as well.
Anyone for expanding Heyuannia to include "Ingenia" yanshini, now that we
know I. mirabilis exists?
